News&Buzz: Single dad chronicles adoption

Waco Tribune staffer Nathan Wade finished chronicling his 14-month-long odyssey to become an adoptive single dad with holiday cheer: "I now have the family I always wished for," he writes online. "I couldn’t ask for more. If Santa leaves nothing else in my stocking, it will still be the best Christmas ever."

Little Sam, from Guatemala, arrived in November, after failed attempts through Ukraine, flak from folks (like his pastor) who told Wade he needed a wife, and miles of red tape and extra checkpoints because he's a man. Did it stop him? Of course not! Wade continues blogging on life as a new single dad here.

AWESOME! Another adoptive single dad! I can't wait to dig into this blog! Please feel free to visit mine. I've been a dad for four years and am wrestling with a teenager already. Good luck, and God bless you!
